Back to school time in Clay County

Back to School Time in Clay County

Dear Friends,

Back to school time is an important event for our entire community. Students are back in class. Teachers

are implementing new lesson plans for the school year. Administrators are working with budgets, school

bus routes, staffing and school safety concerns. Parents are coordinating work and school schedules, car

pools and support for their student’s activities and studies. Businesses are equipping families, teachers

and administrators with the supplies they need for a successful school year. Back to school is a busy time

for us all.

During this busy time, please be extra cautious in traffic. Be mindful of our school traffic zones especially

during the morning hours and early afternoons. Keep an extra look out for potential hazards around our

schools and in neighborhoods where children play. Slow down and increase your stopping distances.

School buses are back on the road. Be aware of school bus routes in your neighborhood and throughout

your daily travel. Leave plenty of time and space for buses. With school traffic, anticipate delays in your

travel and leave early so you’re not in a rush. And, when approaching a school zone or school bus on the

road, be prepared to stop for bus and pedestrian traffic.

I want to thank all of you who help make our education system an integral, positive force in our

community. Our children are counting on us – let’s work together to make “back to school” a rewarding,

fun, and safe time for all Clay County residents.

Thank you,

Sheriff Terry Miller
